Remembrance Day – Ceremony and parade to honour our veterans
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and members of City Council invite residents to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday, November 10, at 9:20 a.m.
“This commemoration is a collective duty of respect acknowledging the efforts of those who sacrificed their lives in the name of freedom. It allows Canadians to symbolically and tangibly recognize their contribution to the war effort so that we can live in peace,” Mayor Belvedere said.
The commemorative activity will begin at 9:20 a.m. with a parade and marching band that will leave from the corner of Hornell and Dieppe avenues and make its way to City Hall by way of Hornell, St. Louis, Maywood and Douglas-Shand avenues.
The ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. at the cenotaph, a monument erected behind City Hall in memory of fallen soldiers. Flags will be at half-mast for the activity as well as on Remembrance Day, November 11.
Area streets will be blocked off for the duration of the parade as a safety precaution.
“On behalf of Council, we invite the entire Pointe-Claire community to join us in wearing a poppy, symbolizing the memory of those who died at war to defend the daily freedoms that we still enjoy today,” the mayor of Pointe-Claire concludes.
